Formula E is back in Brooklyn for the epic, double-header Championship finale. After 12 rounds, its going down to the wire as reigning Champion Jean-Eric Vergne looks to clinch his second consecutive Championship title. Will he manage it or will former champ Lucas di Grassi stand in his way? Join us in the battle for Brooklyn to find out.
Despite a mid-season wobble, which saw him endure three 'pointless' races, DS Techeetah's Jean-Eric Vergne looks imperious at the business end of the season with three podiums in a row – including two victories - as he storms his way to his second Championship title. The win in Bern puts the leader 32 points clear of his nearest rival Lucas di Grassi (Audi Sport Abt Schaeffler). The race for both drivers' second Championship title is well and truly on.
Described by our drivers as "a hardcore street circuit," and "the hardest circuit yet," the 2.750km, 14-turn track in Bern proved to be a handful as all 22 cars and drivers battled for the win in the Swiss capital. Making things harder, a burst of rain soaked the track with only minutes to go. Despite the conditions, Vergne fended off Panasonic Jaguar Racing's Mitch Evans for a hard-fought win.
While the championship might be only five years old, the technology racing around the circuit is ever-changing. The 2018/19 season sees 22 brand new Gen2 cars racing around the world in anger for the very first time. The Batmobile-esque all-electric racer has double the energy storage capacity of the Gen1 car, meaning it can complete a whole race, so wave goodbye to mid-race car swaps. With 250kW of power, the Gen2 will accelerate from 0-100km/h in 2.8-seconds and go on to a top speed of 280km/h. Greater speeds, more action on track and with just one car per driver - there's everything to lose.New power modes
The 2018/19 season is set to be more intense than ever before. New ATTACK MODE lets every driver pick up an extra hit of power at their own risk. To fire up ATTACK MODE, drivers will need to arm their car, drive off the racing line, and through the Activation Zone. It’s only here that they’ll be able to collect an extra 25 kW of power. Drivers that secure the extra speed, can use it for a few laps when they want to race harder, giving them the edge to keep ahead of the competition.The best driver line up
With newcomers HWA Racelab taking the total number of teams to 11, the 2018/19 season of Formula E boasts one of the finest driver line-ups in motorsport. With the likes of Felipe Massa (Venturi Formula E), Pascal Wehrlein (Mahindra Racing), Alexander Sims (BMW i Andretti Motorsport), Maximillian Guenther (Geox Dragon), Oliver Rowland (Nissan e.dams), Gary Paffett and Stoffel Vandoorne (HWA Racelab) all new to the series, the competition is higher than ever before. With all drivers fighting to earn their seat, it’s tough at the top.13 races in 12 cities over 5 continents
At Formula E we turn any city into a race track. The Formula E 2018/19 season calendar sees some familiar favourites reappear alongside some new, iconic cities. With a total of 13 races in 12 cities spread across five continents, what started in Saudi Arabia will return to Marrakesh and Santiago before moving to Mexico City, Hong Kong and, for the first time, Sanya in mainland China. For the newly titled voestalpine European races, we're back on the streets of Rome, Paris, Monaco and Berlin before the series makes its debut in Bern ahead of finishing up with a double-header season finale in New York City, where we'll crown a new champion. It's going to be one hell of a ride.
